    Whilst organising a mock murder hunt for the village fete hosted by Sir George and Lady Stubbs, a feeling of dread settles on the famous crime novelist Adriane Oliver. Call it instinct, but it's a feeling she just can't explain...or get away from. In desperation she summons her old friend, Hercule Poirot - and her instincts are soon proved correct when the "pretend" murder victim is discovered playing the scene for real, a rope wrapped tightly around her neck.

    I wouldn't rate this as one of my favorite Poirot adventures but David Suchet brought the characters to life with such flair that I chuckled repeatedly over the variety of personalities he created with Christi's talent. It was a jolly listen.

    The books in this series are nice for a "cozy" read. They don't attempt to challenge you or keep you on the edge of your seat. They are comfortable just like Hannah's Cookies.

    The narrator's voice sounds older than Hannah's mother would be. Nothing wrong with that but it just didn't fit for Hannah. Having read all the books up to this one, I envision Hannah as fresher, spunkier and lighter. She has a dry wit but that doesn't mean she needs to sound dulled and depressed. With a different voice I would try this series again.

    The story grew on me to the point of being sad it ended when it did. The story is full of tension and humor in just the right doses. If you like stories of perseverance rewarded, you will enjoy it.

    After four hours of this depressing tale I couldn't imagine a reason to go on. Cruelty, brutality and abuse fill the first four hours. If you are tender-hearted, I can not recommend it.

    What do you do when Her Royal Highness decides to bestow her special matchmaking skills on you only to find that she has selected a most unappealing man with big fish lips? How do you protect an innocent loved one when you are so accident-prone that your friends can't tell the difference between clumsiness and attempted murder? How do you cope with your sudden independence, a lone female, without an allowance, without the slightest domestic skills or business experience? Georgie would appear to be a ready victim. Although she stumbles down her path, her common sense, courage, honor and sense of humor serve her very well. She absolutely refuses to cower or surrender. Bravo!

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    During my first attempt to listed to this book I thought maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this supposedly funny book. I tried again two days later and again two days after that. It felt like the author was trying to be "oh so witty" in every sentence (way too much!!!) at the expense of any plot whatsoever. I wanted to like this book to start a new series. Not only did I not laugh at a single attempt of wit but it actually became annoying after a while. Rarely am I picky enough to give up on a book. It might have worked better reading it to myself although I thought the narrator was just fine. The story itself was weak, not witty.

    I gave it three sincere tries but finally had to put a stake in it.
